THE PROVOKED GOD

A week back, a single-room was opened at Thuvaar, a remote dalit village (Sivagangai district, Tamil Nadu) said to keep women in isolation during their menstrual period and young girls on attainment of puberty for 16 days. This custom is termed as ‘Muttukurichi’ to avoid the provoked folk gods.

The point here is, it was inaugurated by K.R.Periyakaruppan who is Hindu Religious and Charitable Endowments (HR&CE) minister of state government lead by chief minister M.Karunanidhi, an atheist and reformist. It's better if DMK Rajya Sabha MP - Kanimozhi justify this.
